Although the Apple Car — which, remember, Apple has never even confirmed — reportedly won't roll out until 2021, according to IHS Automotive forecasts, 55% of annual global new vehicle sales in 2020 will be vehicles that are connected.

 

At that time, nearly half of the global fleet of vehicles in operation will be connected. Findings from a new IHS Automotive global consumer survey indicate that new advanced technologies and increased connectivity are driving consumer preferences as they consider new vehicles. More than 4,000 vehicle owners intending to purchase a new vehicle within the next 36 months were surveyed, representing four key automotive markets – the U.S., China, Germany and the United Kingdom. 

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are the most desired feature among global...

Apple is working on its first retail store in Mexico

Apple plans to open its first retail store in Mexico later this year at the Centro Santa Fe mall, reports AppleInsider

“The Santa Fe location is expected to feature a ‘next generation’ design language with space for a Genius Bar, custom wooden cabinetry for accessories, iconic wooden tables and an ample sales floor,” the article adds. “Whether the outlet will rate the 37-foot, custom built TV display Apple has been installing as part of larger U.S. and international Apple Store renovations is unknown.”

Apple is also planning its first retail store in Taiwan. With the opening of these stores, Apple will have 486 retail stores in 20 countries and an online store available in 39 countries. What’s more, India Prime Minister Narendra Modi is reportedly clearing the way for Apple to open its first retail store in that country....

While my macOS Sierra beta has been pretty rock solid, there is one feature that has stopped working for me. If I click the iCloud Tabs button (the icon of two overlaid squares in the upper-right corner of the Safari window), Safari should open a view that shows all the Safari tabs in my current window, as well as the Safari tabs in my other nearby iOS devices.

For me, the macOS tabs show up just fine, but the iCloud tabs do not appear. I depend on this feature, so I dug around the net to find a workaround while I waited for the Sierra beta that fixed this problem. […]

Australia’s three biggest banks want their apps...

Australia's three biggest banks, including the top lender, National Australia Bank, have lodged a joint application with anti-trust regulators seeking approval to collectively negotiate with Apple to install their own electronic payments applications on iPhones, reports Reuters.

Apple, which operates its Apple Pay mobile payment service, doesn’t allow third-party electronic payment apps to be installed on the smartphone. The banks are seeking to be able to negotiate jointly for access to Apple's phones without themselves being accused of violating anti-competition law, according to Reuters.

On a related note, last November banks in Australia said they weren’t too keen on the idea of giving Apple a bit of the US$2 billion they earn annually from interchange fees, noted the Sydney Morning Herald. In the US, Apple earns close to 15¢ on every $100 of...

The tireless, automated bots that will play Pokémon...

One of the first things I thought of when I first experienced Pokémon Go was how dependent the game was on location and how easy that would be to spoof. It didn’t take long for developers to bring that idea to life:

A new wave of PC-based Pokémon Go “bots” take the hacking a step further, spoofing locations and automating actions to essentially play the game for you while you sit in the comfort of your own home.

There are a number of competing bots out there, from the open source Necrobot to the pre-compiled Pokébuddy to MyGoBot, which recently started charging $4.99 for its automation tool following a three-hour free trial. All of them work on the same basic principles, sending artificial data to the Pokémon Go servers to simulate an extremely efficient, entirely tireless player.

This same sort of thing happened in the early days of World of Warcraft. It took some time, but the folks at Blizzard figured out how to tell if robots were playing for you and took a...

Apple’s employee number one

Craig Cannon, interviewing Apples’ first employee (beyond Steve Jobs and Woz), Bill Fernandez:

Craig: So at what point do Woz and Jobs come together and decide that they want to start working on Apple?

Bill: Okay, well during this Hewlett-Packard period when Woz and I were both there, Woz in the after hours designed his own Pong game. Pong was the first really popular, you know, video game that bars and pizza shops and restaurants could buy and put it in stores and people would come and put quarters in and play. So he built his own circuitry and used it with a small black and white TV set as the display.

Then a couple of things happened. He started working on building his own computer and he started attending the Homebrew Computer Club that was happening at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, SLAC.

So all of those things happened at the same time and then as his computer came together he would take it and show it off...

Motorola confirms that they will not commit to...

Ars Technica:

When we recently reviewed the Moto Z, we said that the device would not be getting Android’s monthly security updates. Motorola doesn’t make this information officially available anywhere, but when we asked Motorola reps at the Moto Z launch event if the company would commit to the monthly updates, we were flatly told “no.”

And:

Motorola has clarified the update situation of the Moto Z and Moto G4, calling Android’s monthly security updates “difficult” and deciding not to commit to them.

Tough to say no to an update that patches a known security vulnerability.

From Moto:

We strive to push security patches as quickly as possible. However, because of the amount of testing and approvals that are necessary to deploy them, it’s difficult to do this on a monthly basis for all our devices. It is often most efficient for us to bundle security updates in a scheduled Maintenance Release (MR) or OS upgrade.

That delay is no small...

Top Australian banks pursue collective boycott of...

Graham Spencer, writing for MacStories:

In a rather extraordinary move, four of Australia’s largest banks have written to Australia’s competition regulator requesting permission to join together in a collective boycott whilst they negotiate with third-party mobile wallet services including Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay.

And:

At the heart of their request is the claim that third party wallet providers have the power to “impose highly restrictive terms and conditions”. The banks point out that 90% of smartphones sold in Australia run iOS or Android, and Samsung is the leading manufacturer of Android phones. Therefore, they claim, Google has significant bargaining power over Android, Samsung over Galaxy phones, and Apple over iPhones. But it is Apple that the banks say “has particularly significant bargaining power in negotiations relating to Apple Pay due to its control of both a key operating system and key mobile hardware”. They point out that in...

Horcrux makes it a breeze to backup, migrate email...

By Aaron Lee

Questions about data sovereignty, data security and cloud computing are important issues are important for every person who has an email account — and that includes you. Technichor's Horcrux Email Backup for Mac users lets you automatically keep you data rather than surrendering it to third party services.

The data stored with some email providers actually belongs to the provider, not to the user. As a result, some folks have been surprised to discover that they've lost access to their data without any recourse.

Horcrux is a background app that takes daily snapshots of email account states similar to the way Apple's Time Machine works with your Mac. The app allows you to browse the emails and undelete specific emails. In case you accidentally delete an important email, you can undelete it with a click.

Another feature of Horcrux is the option it gives people to change email providers without losing all prior data. Horcrux...

Apple remains optimistic after a tough Q3 2016

Another quarter brings with it Apple financial results–nearly $8 billion in profit this time, despite a whole lot of tough year-over-year sales and revenue comparisons. But as a part of the results we also get the chance to hear directly from Apple’s executives, in the quarterly ritual of the conference call with analysts. There’s always good stuff to be gleaned from this call, and this quarter was no exception. Here’s what we learned.

Optimism about the iPhone buying cycle

Combine the changes to the way people buy smartphones (especially in the United States) with the sales fall-off from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone 6s, and a lot of people are worried that the buying cycle of the iPhone is going to be elongated. In other words, while your average smartphone buyer might have purchased a new phone every two years in the past,...

Digital payments using wearables devices such as the combination of Apple Pay and the Apple Watch will drive more than $500 billion in transaction volume annually by 2020, according to Tractica. That will be up from $3.1 billion in 2015.

The market intelligence firm anticipates that, by 2020, wearable payments will represent approximately 20% of the total mobile proximity transaction volume and about 1% of total cashless transactions in retail.

“Wearable payments are just getting started,” says research director Aditya Kaul. “Apple Pay for the Apple Watch is the first big effort at enabling payments with the wrist.”

Apple Q3 Earnings: iPhone Sales Continue To Slide,...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from BGR: Apple on Tuesday announced fiscal third-quarter earnings of $1.42 per share, or $7.8 billion in net income, on sales totaling $42.4 billion. That compares to a net profit of $1.85 per share in the same quarter last year, while revenue slid from the Q3 record of $49.6 billion that Apple set in fiscal 2015. Ahead of Apple's report, analysts were expecting EPS to come in at $1.39 while revenue was seen dropping to $42.1 billion, right in the middle of Apple's guidance of between $41 billion and $43 billion. iPhone sales in fiscal Q3 2016 totaled 40.4 million units, down from the 47.5 million iPhones the company sold during the June quarter last year, which was also a third-quarter record. Wall Street's consensus for this past quarter was 40 million units. The company said it expects between $45.5 billion and $47.5 billion in sales for the fiscal fourth quarter. The only part of Apple's business that's really growing is its mobile apps and...

If you want the best Pokémon Go map, why not use the game’s servers to tell you where to find Pokémon? That’s the aim of Pokévision, which claims to use the the game’s own API to discover the Pokémon in your midst.

Pokévision’s premise is simple: It taps the game’s API to provide a real-time “cheat sheet” pointing to the locations of the nearest Pokémon in Pokémon Go. Each Pokémon location comes with a timer; when that timer expires, the Pokémon de-spawns and disappears. 

“Find all Pokémon near you (or a selected target location) in real time for Pokémon Go. Pokémon nearby will be marked along with their appearance timer on the map,” the Pokévision site claims. “These are real-time Pokemon locations, meaning they are currently live and can be found exactly at the marked spots.”

Why hackers love health apps

WASHINGTON—That handy health app on your phone—the one with access to your medical history, your doctor’s name, even your home address—may be vulnerable to hackers. Technology experts discussed the risks at a House hearing July 14 with the Energy and Commerce subcommittee.

The fast growth of information technologies in the health care sector has outpaced the industry’s efforts to safeguard them. A report by IMS Health, a research and service provider for health care professionals, showed that more than 165,000 mobile health (or mHealth) apps were available in 2013. Many of the apps offer access to users’ electronic health records from doctors or hospitals.

There's a string of LEDs to show how much ink is left for each color, and there's even a handle on top to make the compact printer easy to move. At first glance, it seems abundantly easy to use.

Mac sales for the fiscal 2016 third quarter that ended June 25 were down, but the news wasn’t all bad. Apple sold 4.25 million units during the period, down from from 4.8 million units in the year-ago quarter. However, Mac sales were up 5% from the previous quarter and revenues were up 3% sequentially. 

“It was a challenging quarter for personal computer sales,” says Apple Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri. “We faced a very difficult quarter with Macs compared to the year-ago quarter when we launched a new MacBook Pro and iMac.”

Mac sales could revive later this year with the release of macOS Sierra. Especially if we see new MacBook Pros and revamped Mac desktops.

What’s more, the average selling price of an iPad prose from $430 to $490 due to the higher priced 9.7-inch iPad Pro compared to the previous iPad Air 2.

Among U.S. consumers planning to purchase a tablet in the next 6 months, 63% plan to purchase an iPad, says Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri. Most of those folks plan to buy a pro model, he says.

The good news and bad news about iPhone sales…..

When it comes to the iPhone, there’s good news and bad news. Apple sold 40.4 million iPhones during the fiscal 2016 third quarter that ended June 25. Unit sales were down 21% from the previous quarter and 15% down from the year-ago quarter.  

However, that’s slightly better than the 40 million than Wall Street predicted. Switchers from Android and other platforms accounted for the highest percentage of iPhone buyers than ever before during the quarter, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook. And the iPhone SE demand outstripped supply through the entire June quarter, he added.

On the other than, the average selling price (ASP) of an iPhone declined to $595 from $642 last quarter, due mainly to the iPhone SE. However, according to Cook, the iPhone installed base in China grew 34% over the past year, andiPhone sales in India were up 51% year-over-year in the first three quarters of this year.

Finally, Apple Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri says the iPhone continues...

Apple App Store revenue was up 37% to an all-time high in the fiscal 2016 third quarter that ended June 25. Also, the average amount spent per customer was the highest ever measured. Apple expects its services category to be the size of a Fortune 100 company by next year, says CEO Tim Cook.

Services — Apple Music subscriptions, iTunes Music, iCloud storage plans, paid apps from Apple's App Store, and Apple Care service plans, Apple Pay, etc. — now account for 11% of Apple's overall revenue. That’s up from 8% in the year-ago period.

Speaking of Apple Pay, Apple’s mobile payment services is now live in nine markets, including six of Apple’s top 10 markets. Cook says that three of four contactless payments are now made with Apple Pay. More than 11 million contactless locations/points of sale have been tallied in all participating Apple Pay countries.

Apple's quarterly profit fell 27 percent in Q3 2016, to $7.80 billion from $10.68 billion a year ago, but the company's shares rose today as the earnings beat analysts' expectations. Quarterly revenue was $42.36 billion, down from $49.60 billion in the year-ago quarter, a drop of 14.6 percent.

The third quarter results "reflect stronger customer demand and business performance than we anticipated at the start of the quarter," CEO Tim Cook said. When Apple announced its previous results three months ago, the company said it expected to make between $41 and $43 billion in revenue in the third quarter of...

Apple's so-so Q3: $7.8 billion profit, but...

After Apple’s disappointing second quarter in which iPhone sales slipped for the first time ever, the company had some making up to do. And while iPhone sales continued to decline in the quarter ending June 25, from 47.5 million units in Q3 of last year to 40.4 million this year, the quarter was stronger than both Apple and analysts had expected.

Apple was expecting the slip, as were analysts, though it wasn’t as bad as originally feared. Apple reported a profit of $7.8 billion on $42.4 billion in revenue for the third quarter, which is better than the $42 billion estimated. To compare, Apple raked in $49.6 billion in revenue during Q3 of last year. It was unclear whether the iPhone SE, which was released in March and...

The company had flown a one-fifth scale version of the airplane for several months. The full-sized craft has the wingspan of a Boeing 737 but reportedly weighs less than 900 pounds fully laden, thanks to the carbon fiber materials used in its construction. The goal of last week's test flight was to verify Facebook's operational models and the overall aircraft design.

Live blog: Apple’s fiscal year Q3 2016 earnings call

Just minutes ago, Apple released its official Q3 2016 earnings and as usual, the earnings release will be followed by a live conference call. Typically, Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Luca Maestri give a deeper look into the results, while questions will also be taken from analysts and investors.

In case you missed it, Apple reported $42.4 billion in revenue and $7.8 billion in operating profit. Contributing to those results were sales of  40.3 million iPhones, 9.9 million iPads, and 4.2 million Macs. As usual, Apple did not break out sales of the Apple Watch, which it says is for competitive reasons.

As usual, we’ll have live coverage of Apple’s earnings call in this post. The call will begin at 2PM ET/5PM PT. Tim Cook will likely speak first, followed by Maestri. The Q&A session will round out the call.

Apple Q3 2016 Earnings Summary

Apple just released its Q3 2016 earnings statement and quarterly revenue was down year-over-year for the second quarter in a row. The company posted quarterly revenue of $42.4 billion and a quarterly net income of $7.8 billion. Those compare to $49.6 billion and $10.7 billion in the year-ago quarter. 

The bright spots? Services grew 19 percent year-over-year, and App Store revenue was at its highest level ever. The company returned $13 billion to investors as part of the share repurchase and dividend programs, completing almost $177 billion of the expected $250 billion capital return program. 

It's obvious that the iPad Pro is having an effect on revenues -- although unit sales were down 3 percent from the previous quarter, revenues were up 10 percent. But iPhone numbers were bleak -- unit sales were down 21 percent of the previous quarter and 15 percent down...

Rumor: second gen Apple Watch due this September or...

According to DigiTimes, the second generation Apple Watch will arrive this September or October. Considering that the first generation smartwatch went o sale in September 2014, that timetable sounds about right.

It would make sense for the Apple Watch 2 (pictured here in fanciful mock-ups only) to debut alongside the iPhone 7 (or 6SE, depending on which rumor you believe), which is speculated to debut on Sept. 12. 

So what would be new in an updated Apple Watch? Some sites are suggesting that a FaceTime camera for video calls would be added, but the biggest change would be to make the Watch less dependent on the iPhone when on an Wi-Fi network. The setup and update processes could be made much faster as a result. Also, lots of folks are hoping for a waterproof (as opposed to water resistant) Apple smartwatch.

There are also reports that Apple will introduce a "smart band" capable of...

Review: Moe Bull Stand for iPad Air 2 + 9.7” iPad Pro

The Moe Bull Corporation is a small company which specializes in wooden iPad stands, dubbed the Moe Bull Stand — get it? We received the Moe Bull Stand for iPad Air 2 and 9.7" iPad Pro ($80). The stand has no moving parts. Instead, notches on each side of a tray with one center canal allow an iPad to remain steady in one of four separate landscape viewing angles. Two angles work best for standard viewing, while the more extreme angles lend themselves to typing or iPad viewing in bed, respectively. Moe Bull Stand comes in walnut or maple wood, and there are a number of versions of the stand for other iPad models, as well.{/exp:char_limit}
